Hello, readers. Thanks for playing along and having fun with The Twizzy all year. Here are the results for The Final Game.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there were 5 correct answers. I stopped counting past then because I had to get ready for Thanksgiving. The runners-up for this game are: @cassie_jackson, @kcecelia, @busybrd, and my best friend Millicent.
So who was the winner? It’s @dp57, of course. Congratulations, Donna! This is your 10th Twizzy win! Please pick a prize from the list below and leave your choice in the comments section on this page.
Prizes consist of: Seven Souls A Leaping co-written and donated by Kellyann Zuzulo (while supplies last), $15 Barnes & Noble gift cards (with 1 donated by the wonderful Kellyann Zuzulo), or a surprise FANTASTIC hardcover book from my grab bag of goodies from Alyssa Smith.
So who was the Twizzy Star for Game 38, The Final Game?
You know her.
You love her.
I hope you’ve read her gorgeous writing.
The Twizzy Star of the Week for Game 38 was Catherine Delors.
As this is The Final Game, it’s time to reveal who The Twizzy Grand Champion is. This comes as no surprise to my diehard players, it’s @dp57! Donna, speeding your way is THIS, THE TWIZZY TIARA.
I’m also hoping to send another separate goody, which I can’t reveal. I haven’t yet received said item (although I have harassed the gentleman who owns it several times). You will love. In addition to the mystery prize, I will be sending you a hardcover book from the selection I was given. Congratulations, my friend. You deserved it. I will be keeping this, the Twizzy Tiara you made and sent me. It will forever by my reminder that I ran this mad quiz for so long.
Now, who are the Twizzy Runners-up? They are (in order of wins):
@busybrd with 5
@wrightallison with 4
A tie with:
My best friend Millicent with 3
@LittleSandyW with 3
And a tie with:
@nicholebernier with 2
@cassie_jackson with 2
Keep your eyes on the post, ladies. You will be receiving parting gifts. And, Cassie, I think I need your mailing address, hon. Drop it in the comments section on this page.
The Twizzy is over. I’m extremely proud to say this was the first time anything of this magnitude was put together on Twitter. I am delighted to have had the cooperation of so many authors, journalists, sports writers, literary agents, and publishers. If you’ve not read their books or articles, or followed them on Twitter, why not do so? We’re a literary bunch, after all.
At this time, I’d like to thank each of my Twizzy Stars, because without them, this couldn’t have happened:
